ABOUT THE

BRANCH EXPANSION

The Williams Family Seymour Branch of the Sevier County Public Library System has experienced tremendous growth in use and program attendance over the years. This growth has brought us to capacity use of our current 3,568 square foot facility. This community needs room to grow in an expanded library facility with state-of-the-art technology.

  • Expanded areas for adults, children, and teens
